September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring September's SOTM, which is Thriller, a set of 9 awesome stamps.

If you have come here from Angela Garcia 's Blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Helen's Blog and start from the beginning!

This month we have Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

Inside of the card.

A look at the springy bat.

The products I used are:
D1442 Thriller (Sept. SOTM) (new)
D1311 October Word Puzzle (I just realized this set is retired but I only used the bat)
Z1323 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Clear Card (new)
X7129B Hooligan Level 2 Paper Pack (new)
1385 Daisy White Cardstock
Z888 Black Stazon Ink Pad
Z891  VersaMark Ink Pad
Z670 Black Embossing Powder
Z2191 Sunset Stamp Pad (new)
Z2190 Gypsy Stamp Pad (new)
Z2162 Honey Stamp Pad
Z2397 Pear Marker (new)
Z1089 Black Waxy Flax
Seed beads

I stamped 2 of the framed Dracula stamp with VersaMark and embosssed them on the Daisy White cardstock (cut to 3 3/4 x 5 with corners rounded).  I cut the image  in the frame of one of the stamped images to make a window to see into the card. I sponged Black, Sunset and Gypsy inks on the cardstock to look like sunset background.  I adhered the cutout image on the front of the card with B&T paper in the inside so the adhesive is not seen.  The inside image was adhered and I adhered a 4 X5 1/4 piece of B&T to the back of the card keeping the adhesive away from the edges so it will not show inside.  I colored the Dracula image with markers and blending pen dipped in the ink pad.  
I stamped the bat image with VersaMark and embossed with Black embossing powder, then cut it out and attached it to the front of the card with a piece of coiled wire to give it a little "bounce".  I pierced holes around the edge of the front to the card and them threaded black waxy flax through with seed beads.  

Thanks for hopping by:)
